Map Comments are stored within the .map file, so when you use the
.map file on OziCE, they should display properly.
When you use 'map calibration' to attach files to be loaded when
the .map file is openned, Ozi stores the path to the attached file.
Therefore, I would assume that OziCE would only be able to open
the attached file if it were in the exact same path on the CE device
as on the PC.
On the other hand, in the OziCE Help, under "Map Image File Path 1 & 2"
it says "The link to the image path contained within the .map file is
totally ignored", so maybe the path doesn't matter.
Or maybe OziCE doesn't support loading of attached files?
Or maybe OziCE doesn't support Points?

I think you might be right about the lack of point support, as I tried to calibrate again
and managed to get waypoints and comments to show on OziexplorerCE...but no
On another note...those winter Olympics should be pretty sweet in 2010. I wasn't at
first sure whether Vancouver got the summer or winter ones - not bad being able to
host both, eh?

If you always need them visible, then waypoints are the only way. If you're
only interested in those points on one map, then either Map Comments, or Map
Features can tie text or symbols to a particular map image.

you choose when creating the waypoints.
